Forbidden Shots

Taking pictures of these priceless relics displayed at the San Agustin Church Museum is strictly forbidden. The guard and the signs said so. But it was only me and Bulan. I could not resist the chance. I did not use the flash though.


Clockwise from upper left corner: an 18th century wooden retablo/altar as the centerpiece of Luis Ma. Araneta’s ivory collection at the Sala Recibidor; the original retablo/altar of the San Agustin Church made in 1650 by Juan de los Santos now displayed at the old sacristy; the present retablo/main altar of the San Agustin Church, and; the retablo/main altar of the Aranetas’ Pagrel Collection at the sala profundis of the old refectory.
